: Life on Earth

A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
The story of life from the first primitive cells to the plants and animals that now live around us. 4: The Swarming Hordes
The number of insect species runs into millions; a single termite colony may consist of a million individuals; a locust swarm even a million million.
But not all insects destroy plants as locusts do. Some have developed extremely close relationships. Insects pollinate flowers and in some cases neither flower nor insect can survive without the other.
Film editor BETTY BLOCK MuSiC EDWARD WILLIAMS
Executive producer CHRISTOPHER PARSONS. BBC Bristol
Book (same title), £8.95, from bookshops. To help the hard-of-hearing to follow this series, each programme will have sub-titles on Cee/ax page 170

Omnibus looks at the world of four amateur film-makers, and at the enthusiasms, dreams and obsessions that inspire them.
Ian Rintoul won last year's 'Ten Best' award from Movie Maker for his film 29 Seconds to Zero - a stunning 10-minute reconstruction of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Carole Ann Stafford and Alan Crowe make films set in their own semi in Halesowen. Their Hitch-cock-inspired Carole is the story of an isolated housewife menaced by a masked intruder.
Max Kemp has been making films since 1928. They've ranged from local newsreels to mini-dramas which he shows in his own cinema, built in the back garden.
'Making films is a lasting thing - a film is something living and lasting.'
Film cameramanIAN PUNTER Film editor RAY FRAWLEY
Executive producer LESLIE MEGAHEY Director TED CLISBY

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
